Pieces falling into place for National Jigsaw Day 2017

With the weather turning colder, the leaves starting to fall and Halloween creeping closer, it can only mean one thing… National Jigsaw Day is on it’s way! Now in its third year, we are celebrating the wonderful pastime of puzzling on the 3rd of November with a number of fantastic festivities.

National Jigsaw Day will also be the launch pad for our national support of puzzle clubs, as we will be offering people and communities up and down the country advice and support in setting up ‘Piece Together’ clubs. 

Stay tuned for more information on that, but we can say that our Minister for Jigsaws, Sue Riches, is  giving advice. Sue set up the original Piece Together puzzle club, and the organisation has been a massive success with lots of people in her local area of Banbury attending monthly jigsaw sessions.

National Jigsaw Day also marks the beginning of our search for a new Minister for Jigsaws, sadly ending Sue’s term. Thanks to her wonderful work, she will be staying on in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transition to the new Minister and will be working with us to promote Piece Together clubs.

New applications open on the 3rd of November and all you need to do to be considered is tell us why you feel you deserve the role (in no more than 100 words). Written applications should be made to ministerforjigsaws@jigsaws.co.uk. The incumbent Minister will be bestowed with a number of responsibilities, including the honour of testing Wentworth Puzzles’ new jigsaws and promoting the calming properties of puzzles during the year.

Make sure you tweet us with the hashtag #NationalJigsawDay and get involved in our puzzle party on the 3rd. If you are interested in setting up a jigsaw club, or for a chance to win one of our limited edition National Jigsaw Day puzzles, keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and blog.

We’ll also be running some fantastic offers on National Jigsaw Day, so check our website regularly as you can grab yourself or a loved one a perfect puzzle for Christmas at an amazing price. Our Christmas Collection looks fantastic and we’ve got perfect puzzles for all ages. Our advent calendar in particular is a great alternative to chocolate for younger puzzlers!
